Here's The Latest Episode Of The Random.

I've said it once or 27 times that I'm a lot random. I wish I had a dollar for every time I've said something random to Spencer and he's said back to me, "now how did your brain get to that thought?" It's a gift, I tell ya.

But since you're sitting on the edge of your seats waiting to read my latest random thoughts, I won't keep you hanging any longer.

You're welcome.

1. The noise level of the neighbor's weed eater is directly proportional to how much Tait and Camille need a nap.

2. I have decided that I will spend much of my kids' college funds on toenail polish. My girls want their toenails painted a new color every day.

3. My neighbor found some high end toddler clothes for ridiculously cheap prices this week at Costco. Rock that.

4. I need to write that neighbor a check for the clothes she bought for Camille. TO DO LIST.

5. I need to make a To Do list.

6. My prissy 7 (almost 8) year old, who has been praying for 2 weeks for a warm enough day to wear her cute new black dress to school, finally got her warm, sunny day today. But she decided to wear shorts instead so she could compete better at kickball in PE.

7. I am completely amazed and blessed by my blog friends. They have become some of the closest friends I have ever had in my life. And the funniest thing is that only 2 of them live within an hour of where I live. The others live in TN, GA, TX, KS (soon to be CA), FL, AR, & other parts of AL. I miss them a lot right now and would love to be in the same room as them ALL AT ONCE and hug their necks.

8. I need to paint my toenails.

9. I also need to clean my bathtub. Totally not related to the toenail painting need.

10. I have a full out flip flop tan already. And my ballpark life is just beginning to get really busy. By July, I'll take a picture so you all can marvel at it.

11. I miss my Tallahassee peeps and would like to hang out with all of them soon.

12. I'm entering into the phase of my life where the kids are starting to argue with each other and push each other's buttons and drive each other crazy. AND I DON'T LIKE IT. Advice welcomed.

And I'm gonna end on that one, since I'm now headed to put Tait and Camille in separate corners.

Love #7! I so agree. And I hope I'm one of the ones you think about in TX!!!

Andd advice about the bickering? Ear plugs. It lasts a few years. And with that encouragement, I just eliminated any chance of the first paragraph happening!! LOL

Um, you don't know how #7 blessed my socks much so I haven't worn socks all day! ;)

What a blessing technology is and how grateful I am to know siestas like you who are passionate about Christ and fun to live every day life with...glad we'll get to be on the same block in Heaven!

p.s. the lawn cares teams seem to know exactly when my 2 youngest are also in dire need of good naps...must be a built in sensor...

You know how I feel about #7...seeing as how we talked about it today...
Regarding your offer of getaways...Mentioned it to Abby and she started thinking out loud,"Do I work next weekend? I think so, but maybe we could do it the next..." I started laughing because she was already up for it before I even fully got it out! She has been feeling the same way!! Wonder what that means?

Anyways...I love your randomness! I love you and can't wait to see you!

Random me has been so blessed by random you!

Hey - I'm older - let me tell you about that bickering...I had boys, so it's a little different in that it is over and done pretty quickly with no "drama." Ask Fran - she'll tell you about boys.

Anyway, my husband and I would "talk it up" to them about how one day all they would have would be each other and that they really needed to be close and love one another...then I would quote Psalm 133:1 "Behold how good and pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity."

They are 24 and 27 right now and are the best of buddies...

Love #7 too - blog world is amazing. I love y'all!

I am with you on the fighting children. We started this phase about 6 months ago. I am like whoa. I am a new blogger and wanted to tell you that I loved your comment on the living proof blog about your father-in-law eating gummy worms like it was his job. I just started rolling. I haven't heard that in forever!!!:)That was too cool.

Hello! I just "happened" across your blog and have enjoyed reading what little I had time for and will definitely be back to snoop some more! This is a great post, I see right off the bat we have a few things in husband also marvels at my "randomness", we have 3 girls as well, they are entering the very unpleasant arguing stage, I haven't figured out if you are from Tallahassee originally or not (I am), but I'll be back to get to know you better soon! Blessings...
